  • What is the best way to seal ceramic tiles?

  • It is important for the sealer applicator to be able to apply an even coat of sealer to the surface of the ceramic tiles. The applicator must also be able to pull the sealer out of the grout lines so that pools of sealer do not settle in the grout lines. A thin even coat of sealer will provide the best looking most durable type of finish.

  • How do you seal a glazed ceramic vessel?

  • Let it sit for six hours and then test the seal by filling the vessel with water. If there is a leak, dry the vessel and re-apply sealant. Apply a liberal amount of Marble Infusion sealant to both the interior and exterior of your ceramic vessel. This sealant penetrates the glaze and bonds directly with the ceramic on a molecular level.

  • What happens when you heat up a ceramic sealer?

  • When ceramic heats up, it expands and may expose pinpoint sized flaws in the seal. If there are leaks, heat the ceramic and apply another coat of Marble Infusion to the warm vessel to fill in the exposed leak.
